Real Madrid: Fans want Thibaut Courtois out of the picture

Real Madrid fans took to Twitter to call for Thibaut Courtois to remain away from the first-team picture, with many of them appearing to have been disappointed by the latest update from the club.

Should Thibaut Courtois be dropped for Alphonse Areola?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The club’s post on their social media account provided a medical update on the Belgian shot-stopper after he was unable to complete the Champions League match against Club Brugge earlier in the week.

The 27-year-old was forced to withdraw at the half-time interval with what has been confirmed by the club as an “acute case of gastroenteritis with dehydration and electrolyte imbalance” but is understood to be responding well to treatment.

Real Madrid had acted swiftly to stamp out the rumours that Courtois was replaced by Alphonse Areola for the second half because of an anxiety attack and stated those suggestions were completely false.

Although it was good news for the player and the club in general, it would appear many of the fans on Twitter had a different view of things and subsequently decided to mock the announcement.

Plenty of them had hoped the “Official Announcement”, or “Comunicado Oficial” as has become famous with football fans, was to inform them that Courtois would either be out of the season or had been told to leave the club at the next available opportunity.

Here are just some of their reactions…
